Solved wanted to restore from the restore partion

October 10, 2011 at 12:30:13
Specs: Windows Vista, Intec Centrino
Ctrl+F11 didn't work. Vist built in repair console helped. DELL put a link there to access the restore partion it give you the option to formatt though...for safety I back up the files before I started though...and I guess programs will have to be installed back so make sure you have programs ready.

Alex
Any corrections contact me

Then how may I help you?

Normally Dell and other big name companies offer a few ways to return the unit to the as bought state. This is the best way to fix systems in many cases. It is like nuking it from high orbit. The only way to be sure.

There may be a recover partition, ways to create disk, disks offered at sale and disks offered as secondary purchase. What do you have to work with?

All the as bought programs should return. All the add on programs will be lost. You need backup copies of them or original disks.

Problems also may be that you local network would have virus's and usb drives may contain the virus. Be sure to sweep them all.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

When you recover it to OEM state it should be as you bought it.

I can't seem to see a question in your post. Are you asking one or simply asking for feedback to your thoughts?

I'm not so seasoned in this yet but yes have backups of the programs...
in my opinion the recovery partision is good but I do belive that they should still send OEM Discs with the PC as sevral times the HDD had to be upgrades and transfering these OEM Partition that that i don't know yet.
